Winemaker’s Lunch with Royal Tokaji Company - Friday 3 May
Join us in the Spectator boardroom on Friday 3 May for the next in our series of Spectator Winemaker Lunches with Charlie Mount, managing director of the Royal Tokaji Company, the celebrated producer of the luscious sweet wines of Hungary not to mention increasingly fine dry white Furmints.
Referred to as ‘The wine of kings and the king of wines’ by Louis XIV – The Sun King himself – Tokaji is an astonishing wine, produced in the oldest classified wine region in the world and famed as a health-giving elixir.
Over the course of a fine cold lunch provided by Forman & Field, Charlie will discuss and present the 2016 The Oddity, Dry Furmint, the 2016 Nyulászó Single Vineyard Dry Furmint, the 2017 ‘By Appointment’ Betsek Hárslevelú, the 2013 Blue Lable 5 Puttonyos Aszú, the 2013 Szt. Tamás Single Vineyard 6 Puttonyos Aszú and the once-in-a-lifetime 2008 Essencia, a jaw-dropping wine which took some ten years to ferment and which, as tradition dictates, will be supped from a handmade crystal spoon.
If you’ve never tried Tokaji you are in for a wondrous treat; and if you have, you will know how special this lunch will be.
